I think Jonathan has been pretty clear that he doesn't agree with you
and why. I consider SIP fundamentally harmful in the way it is
implemented and of highly questionable value. It is essentially breaking
a lot of things for little to no gain in real security and just not
worth the price of admission. The ctest argument is weak and how it
works on any other system already. There is also no attack vector here
given that you are already building and running somewhat arbitrary code.
